Yet another Chip Kelly source/rumor

Cam has been choosing the wrong reads also, but our line isn't built for the read option. If you look at Gross out there, he looks gross and lost at times. He has a hard time identifying the right blocks when defenses crash the line. Think about it, our vets have been in the league at least 5 years and going back to college schemes is like teaching them all over again. If we want to run the read option we will need to go young.

agreed on the Oline.

that is a huge reason for the lack of success. a lack of experience with it. a lack of reps.

but then this Oline isn't really good for much this year anyway. it's been beat up and when it wasn't, it was being just a typical panther Oline that takes half a season to get their act together.

i can guarantee you that wouldn't be the case if kelly were here.

Yes. I know he's a great offensive coach, but how would this affect our defense?

it depends on who they got to run it.

I'd only want Kelly with a monster of a DC. Like Rivera or Ryan level.

I will tell you why, Wheels and Stewie have been held back because of incentive packages. I believe it's a fact that we would have won more games had deangelo gotten the 18 to 20 touches that he needs to explode. If shakey Jake said it then it has to be true.

because chud's doing it wrong.

because cam chooses to keep the ball more than dish it out.

it doesn't matter whose running the ball, tho. it's still a running game.

as bad as u guys want a new head coach, OC etc. Keep in mind, coaching changes mean system changes. These players are just now grasping this system. Having a coaching now, would set this team back even further.

i've said the same thing. he has to be paired with a DC that has experience running a team either as a HC or a Asst. HC and they have to have years of experience, but they also have to be able to mesh with the program.

Pay him no mind. Its not worth the energy you'd use, to type an informed thought. Mathias = Ralph Wiggum of the huddle...

Cam is our leading rusher because our running backs were hampered with the delay at the line of scrimmage, due to the read option. DeAngelo almost had 100 yards rushing against the Chargers, and that is because he is getting more snaps away from the read option. The proof is in the pudding. This is the NFL, where everyone plays a million miles an hour. If there is any hesitation, the defense will be on it like nobody's business. Cam's indecisiveness and Chud's pace for the offense had little to do with D-Will and J-Stew being unable to run the ball this year. Another thing that killed the running game was a lack of a true fullback.

With Kelly, we will see pretty much the same offense we've seen for most of the year, or something just like it. With it, our running game will be dead. They might as well have me running the ball for Kelly's offense.

i'm not a fan of that either, but we can't avoid going forward because we're afraid of an adjustment time. the right coaching staff, though, would be able to get everyone on board and on the same page quicker.

just because this one took so long to work doesn't mean they all will. look at the other teams with massive changes in coaching and philosophies that got turned around quicker.

i'm not worried about it. they're big boys, they can adjust...esp. with the right coaching.
